The VSDX files can now be opened easily in Visio 2010:

1) Install Visio 2010 Sp2 from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2687468/en-us

2) Install "Compatibility Pack" from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39640

The VSDX files would then be recognized as Visio Files by Visio 2010.
